Floral Basket

Hello to you all!  Are you sick of winter or are you lucky (like me) and are experiencing some Spring-type weather?  Today I am excited to show you a card that I made using both CropStop's challenge of using 3 flowers or more AND MTME's Pretty Pattern challenge.  I took the following photo outside on my front porch.  My husband built me a potting bench quite a few years ago and although I haven't done much gardening recently, I keep some cute pots that I've painted as well as some other decorative things on it.  I love the little ceramic watering can below so I took a picture of my card next to it.  Notice the reflections on the tile.  :)

I cropped the watering can out of the picture so you can see the card a little better.  I love this paper from MTME called Gardening Greats.

I was running out of daylight so I didn't get an angel view photo taken outside so we'll just have to settle with the one below.  I used some white shiny flowers that were left over from my son's wedding.  I just might have to go into the Wedding isle at Michael's the next time I go and get some more.  They are perfect for this basket.

Thank you for stopping by.  I truly appreciate each visit and comment.  I would like to invite you to visit both the CropStop Blog and the MTME Pretty Patterns blog to see what amazing projects these designers have in store for you.
